he Girl on the Train is a 2021 Indian Hindi-language mystery thriller film directed by Ribhu Dasgupta and produced under the banner of Reliance Entertainment. The film is based on British author Paula Hawkins’ 2015 novel of the same name and stars Parineeti Chopra as an alcoholic and troubled divorcee who gets embroiled in a murder investigation. It also features Avinash Tiwary, Aditi Rao Hydari and Kirti Kulhari.
After lawyer Mira Kapoor (Parineeti Chopra) refuses to back down from a case and wins it, she and her husband Shekhar (Avinash Tiwary) are hit by a car as revenge from the defendants.
Pregnant at the time, Mira loses her child and finds herself spiralling into alcoholism. On top of this, she is diagnosed with anterograde amnesia, a condition which prevents her from transferring short term memories to long term memories.
She become abusive, and ends up ruining her marriage with Shekhar, who marries Anjali (Natasha Benton) after having an affair with her while still married to Mira.
Divorced and suffering, Mira has hit rock bottom. While travelling by train each day, she develops an obsession with Nusrat (Aditi Rao Hydari), who she frequently spots in her balcony. She believes Nusrat has a perfect life with her husband Anand (Shamaun Ahmed), the same as what Mira once had.
Things take a turn for the worse when Nusrat is found dead in a forest in Greenwich, and Mira has some recollection of the crime scene.
The inspector in charge of the case (Kirit Kulhari) is hot on her heels and strongly believes she is connected to the killing. Did Mira kill Nusrat? Or is there more to the story?
The Girl on the Train (2021) ending explained in detail: The father of Nusrat’s unborn child When Shekhar’s former boss Zehra (Monisha Hassen) reveals to Mira that the stories of her getting drunk and abusive were all made up by Shekhar.
Zehra also tells her that Shekhar was fired because he harassed his co-worker, something he pinned on Mira’s behaviour at one of Zehra’s parties.
Realising that Shekhar took advantage of her amnesia and drunk state to manipulate her and gain an upper hand, Mira is left shocked. He also lied to her that she could not get pregnant again after the accident due to complications.
In possession of Nusrat’s phone, Mira notices her chats with Shekhar, and figures out that she had been having an affair with him. They had also planned to meet in the forest that day of her murder.
Mira manages to locate evidence collected by the private investigator, named Walter (Richie Lawrie), that Anand had hired to keep an eye on Nusrat, suspecting her of infidelity. Though Walter is killed after being hit by a black car, Mira finds pictures of Nusrat and Shekhar, confirming the affair.
Nusrat had earlier revealed to her psychiatrist Dr. Hamid that she was pregnant and Anand was not the father of the child. The revelation exposes Shekhar as the real father.
It’s all coming back Mira begins to remember the night of the murder. She was noticed by Shekhar and beaten to the state of unconsciousness, believing she wouldn’t remember the incident the next day anyway. She calls him for a final confrontation.
At gunpoint, Shekhar confesses that he met Nusrat in the forest and when he found Mira following her, he assaulted his former wife.
When he went back to Nusrat, she revealed her pregnancy. Knowing that the situation would ruin his marriage with Anjali, Shekhar wanted nothing to do with the child.
When Nusrat threatened to expose him and accused him of using women, Shekhar choked her until she collapsed, believing her to be dead.
Shekhar offers Vodka to Mira as a means to ‘appease’ her. However, she baits Shekhar by offering Nusrat’s phone, which has all the proof against him, and hits him on the head with the gun, leaving him unconscious.
